Stacks Docklet 2.0

526 posts in this topic

Since it looks like Matonga won't be coming back anytime soon, is anyone talented enough to modify Stacks Docklet 2.0 such that folder contents are reloaded every time a folder is viewed? Right now, any changes made to any Stacks folder contents will not be updated until the next time RocketDock is loaded.

I know, StandaloneStack 2 already does this, but I have tried Standalone Stack 2 and just don't like the way the stacks behave as much as Matonga's.

StandaloneStack 2 and Stacks Docklet 2 are based off of the same stackslib.dll. Therefore they behave the same. List your problem in terms of behavior for Standalone Stack 2 in the Standalone Stack 2 thread and I will assist you in fixing this issue.

I prefer StackDocklet v1, because v2 don't show very well icons (instead, v1 show icons like they are, always in 48x48 pixels). V2 don't show very well even I choose 48x48 pixels. I don't know why!

Wow, I'm surprised that Matonga still continued with this project! I haven't updated my stacks docklet for a few years or so, looks like the time is ripe to try the newest version.

EDIT : Whoah! The 2.0 version is absolutely amazing! I'm definitely digging this.

On another note, after browsing the last couple pages of posts, I still see that people are being rather ungrateful towards Matonga and his [free!] work going into developing this wonderful plugin. Quite unfortunate really.

I am running Windows 7 64bit. Is it possible to get a video image preview when the file is in the stack? That would be so helpful. Thank you.

anyone??

Any way to turn off the labels of the icons in the stack like in version 1? Also I tried going back to version 1 and RocketDock just hangs on right-click.

Found a bug with stacks docklet 2.0

You mentioned certain icons might look bad... well I seem to have found one that crashes RocketDock!

I've enclosed it, used resource hacker to extract it from the disk analysis tool in Glary Utils. Unless I change the icon on the lnk file pointing to this app, trying to set up a stacks docklet to a folder which includes the shortcut crashes Rocketdock.

I love the app by the way, not complaining just trying to help out anyone with the same problem!

hit the Custom Icons checkbox

then go to StandaloneStack directory/Images and change the folder icon to whatever you want. It has to be in png and have the same name as the current folder icon.

Hi,

first of all thanks for your software, it is great!

unfortunately I can't use it under windows seven, and for my porposes I prefer to use stack docklet 1.0 than 2.0,

it's because when I give the path to the stack docklet 1.0 I can write it my self, and I run my RocketDock from my USB.

So when I write the path (in stack-docklet 1.0) I Put "/Documents" but in stack docklet 2.0 there is no way to write it my self, please help me...or please could you tell me how can I write the path myself in stack-doclet 2.0?

Thank you.

I'm having difficulties running Stacks Docklet 2.0 running in WinPE. Rocket dock runs fine but when i right click on rocketdock i get the following error:

"The Program can't start because StackLib.dll is missing from your computer. Try Reinstalling the program to fix the problem."

Does anyone know how to fix this issue. I verified the dll in the the rocketdock\Docklets\StackDocklet 2.0 error

Thanks

I had the same problem as you, but fix the issue. The procedures to install it is similar to the instruction for rocket dock, which was provide in the text file. The problem was, we had to move the StackLib.dll to the root directory of object dock. I was afraid I couldn't get the StackDocklet2.0 after reformatting because the link was broken ^^; Thanks for providing the file.

---

Place the StackLib.dll and StackDocklet.dll files according to the following floating dock applications:

RocketDock

C:\Program Files\RocketDock\StackLib.dll

C:\Program Files\RocketDock\Docklets\StackDocklet2.0\StackDocklet.dll

ObjectDock

C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\StackLib.dll

C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\Docklets\StackDocklet2.0\StackDocklet.dll

Your installation directory may vary from the example given.

---

If there was ever a version 3.0, the only improvement I can see is to display the directly of what folder it is for, and what icon image we are using in the stackdocklet properties. ^^ Would be nice if it automatically goes the parents directory of the previous stackdocklet location.
